YAO JUICHUNG

28 June – 23 August 2003
Aspex Gallery Portsmouth

Gods and monsters that inhabit ephemeral, ficticious or utopian realms are featured in Yao Juichung’s photographic installations. The artist examines the human plight and explores our need to immerse ourselves in a world of illusion in order to escape the helplessness of real life.

Yao Juichung is a Taiwanese artist, critic and curator with an international reputation. He represented Taiwan at the Venice Biennale in 1997 and has exhibited extensively in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.
